Today’s Menu: Sweet Slice Boneless Smoked Ham and Swiss Sandwich w/ Chunky Baked Potato Soup with Cheddar and Bacon Bits



For Breakfast this morning I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, fried up 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast sausage Links, toasted 1 slice of Healthy Life Whole Grain Toast, and had the morning cup of Bigelow sweet-slice-boneless-smoked-ham-and-swiss-sandwich-w-chunky-bak-006Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast did some cleaning around the house and finished up a couple of loads of laundry for Mom. After Lunch I went out and finished up my Christmas shopping, picked up a couple of gift cards and a couple of Ohio Lottery Holiday Scratch Off Cards. Went by a local Shopping Center area and it was a mad house! It was jam-packed with people, last minute shoppers! Back home, just relaxed the rest of the afternoon. For Dinner tonight its Sandwich and Soup. I prepared a Sweet Slice Boneless Smoked Ham and Swiss Sandwich w/ Chunky Baked Potato Soup with Cheddar and Bacon Bits.



While at our local Kroger a while back, they had Boar’s Head Sweet Slice Boneless Smoked Ham on sale in the Deli. I had not tried this one before so I purchased some to give it a try and have been using it ever since! It’s my favorite Ham, at least for now. As all the Boar’s Head products it was delicious and only 60 calories and 1 carb per serving. To make the sandwich I’ll need the Boar’s Head Sweet Slice Boneless Smoked Ham, Sargento Reduced Fat Sliced swiss Cheese, French’s Yellow Mustard, and a Healthy Life Whole Grain Bun. Easy to prepare and one delicious Sandwich!


To go with my Sandwich I heated up a can of Campbell’s Chunky Baked Potato Soup with Cheddar and Bacon Bits. Another easy to prepare item; just empty the contents of the can into a sauce pan and heat. Heated it on medium low heat, stirring often. I love a thick and hearty Soup and this one is perfect. Campbell’s Chunky Baked Potato Soup with Cheddar and Bacon Bits is the best there is, at least to me. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Enjoy the exceptional flavor of a traditional bone-in ham without the bone. Available in the Deli retail case as a center of the plate item or at the Service Deli sliced by the pound for a sandwich of note.
